Some billboards intended to dispel myths about atheism are turning heads in Columbus, but one of them has been removed at the request of a church, 10TV's Josh Poland reported on Wednesday.

Seven of the billboards have been put up at locations throughout the city by the Freedom From Religion Foundation. The foundation wants the billboards to help the public understand that atheists are not bad people.

As it turned out, Galos' first billboard was located near the corner of Stelzer Road and Allegheny Avenue, on property belonging to Christ Cathedral Church, Poland reported.

"I was surprised, to be honest," he said. "I went there and it was next to a church."

The church opted to have the sign removed.

The billboard was moved to another location on the east side of Columbus. All the billboards will be up until mid July.
